"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom."
Fees are $185 per 45 minute session. Sessions will begin and end promptly. Please arrive on time for your appointment in order to maximize the benefits of a full session.
I currently am a preferred provider for Blue Shield (PPO). For other insurance plans or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services as an out-of-network provider to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
Some insurance providers offer mental health coverage, check your specific policy for details.
Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
You will have to contact your insurance provider to find out what your deductible is and how far along you are towards meeting it.
How many sessions per year does my insurance policy cover?
Different insurance policies cover mental health differently. Check your policy or talk to your provider for your policy’s details.
How much does my policy cover per therapy session?
Depending on your coverage your financial responsibility can vary. Check with your provider to see what your responsibility will be.
Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
Depending on your insurance you may or may not need prior approval. Check with our provider to understand your individual policy.
I accept cash and checks as forms of payment. I also accept credit and debit card payment via Ivy Pay, a confidential and HIPAA compliant service.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you be charged for the full rate of the session.
